As they try to rebound from a 5-4 walk-off loss to the Oakland Athletics at O.co Coliseum, the Orioles will face right-hander Jason Hammel - Baltimore's Opening Day starter in 2013 - for the first time this season. Hammel signed a one-year deal with the Chicago Cubs in the offseason and was dealt to Oakland along with Jeff Samardzija earlier this month. The Orioles player who has had the most success against Hammel? Catcher Nick Hundley, who is 7-for-14 with one homer and two RBIs.

SARASOTA, Fla. - The Orioles are shelving right-hander Edgmer Escalona for the next three weeks because of inflammation in his right shoulder. The 27-year-old Escalona's only spring training appearance was an unimpressive one. He allowed five runs - all earned - on four hits over one innings of work in Saturday's Grapefruit League home opener against the Blue Jays. So far this spring the Orioles have avoided any significant injuries, but this one definitely hurts Escalona's chances of making the major league roster on Opening Day. He was still somewhat of a dark horse to make the club, but now Escalona likely won't be ready to return before the final week of exhibition games.

On Javy Lopez joining the Colorado Rockies Actually, if you were to pick one location to put the guy, it would be Colorado. Power has always been Javy's only contribution, and Coors Field will only magnify that. Good for Javy. Maybe Rodrigo Lopez is a Rockie soon? Is the rumor true that there's a shortage of catchers? They seem like left-handed relievers; anyone will do, and anyone will take a chance on one.

The Orioles have signed 49-year old LHP Jamie Moyer to a minor-league contract. Moyer is expected to start for Triple-A Norfolk on Saturday. The Colorado Rockies released Moyer and he cleared waivers, making him a free agent. Earlier this season, Moyer became the oldest pitcher to win a major league game. He had a stint with the Orioles from 1993-1995. This season, Moyer was 2-5 with a 5.70 ERA with the Rockies.

A potential deal with outfielder Tyler Colvin has been held up due to concerns the Orioles had about a physical he took last Wednesday, according to an industry source. No specifics were given as to what questions the Orioles may have had or if the Orioles and Colvin could potentially agree to a lesser deal.  Asked earlier today about any hold up involving Colvin, Orioles executive vice president Dan Duquette said: “We didn't report anything with Colvin. We never reported anything with Colvin.” Duquette has never confirmed that a deal was in place with Colvin - or that the club was talking to the 28-year-old outfielder.

Right-hander Jason Hammel took the first major step toward returning to the Orioles in September, throwing from a mound Friday for the first time in nearly four weeks and feeling no discomfort in his right forearm. “It went real well, 44 pitches and command of all pitches. It felt great,” said Hammel, who hasn't pitched in a game since losing to the Boston Red Sox on July 28. “I felt the extension that I was looking for that I didn't have before. So, outstanding.” Diagnosed with a strain of the flexor mass in is right arm, Hammel has had difficulty getting full extension on his delivery, which particularly affected his slider.

The Orioles aren't going to talk about big wins in August, not with six weeks and 40 games left in the season. So their 8-4 victory over the Colorado Rockies before an announced 31,089 on Saturday night was just another win, one that moved them within 3 1/2 games of the second-place Tampa Bay Rays, who arrive at Camden Yards on Monday for a three-game series. It's more how the Orioles beat the Rockies that might have some significance. Their bats finally came alive - at least for the club's most productive inning of the season.

After throwing 2 1/3 scoreless innings this weekend, right-hander Josh Stinson was optioned back to Triple-A Norfolk following Sunday's game. Stinson knew his stint in Baltimore might be short, but said he wanted to make an impression on Showalter -- in part to facilitate a call-up when rosters expand in September. “I wanted to go out and show Buck that he can put me in a situation and I can go out there and execute my pitches,” said Stinson, who allowed two hits and a walk while striking out one in two games against the Colorado Rockies.

J.J. Hardy's absence at shortstop for the Orioles on Saturday night was a noticeable one. He's been a fixture in the Orioles lineup all season, missing only one game when manager Buck Showalter gave him a day off. But Hardy was scratched from the starting lineup in the Orioles' 8-4 win over the Colorado Rockies after back spasms flared up as he got ready to take batting practice. “I feel like I probably could have played tonight,” Hardy said. “I don't think we wanted to risk anything to make it get worse.

Facing a remaining schedule full of teams in the American League playoff race, the Orioles had the opportunity to win the series against the Colorado Rockies on Sunday afternoon before entering the final phase of the season. And the Orioles delivered, beating the Rockies, 7-2, as center fielder Adam Jones and first baseman Chris Davis each hit a two-run home run, while right-hander Scott Feldman turned in a quality start, before an announced 22,238 on a cool, overcast day at Camden Yards.

The Orioles scratched shortstop J.J. Hardy from the starting lineup with back spasms a little less than 90 minutes before the start of Saturday night's game against the Colorado Rockies. Hardy is listed as day-to-day. "I feel like I probably could have played tonight," Hardy said. "I don't think we wanted to risk anything to make it get worse. I think it definitely got better with the treatment today. We'll see tomorrow. I think it'll be pretty good. "   Ryan Flaherty, who was slated to be the designated hitter, will start in Hardy's place and bat eighth.
